Explanation:

The idea is to write the first non zero number mutiplied by a power of #10#.

To evaluate the power we move the point to the right to pass the first non zero and count the jumps to use the number of jumps as NEGATIVE power of #10#.
In our case we move: #8# times the point to the right (passing the #2#) so our number becomes:

#2xx10^-8#
